Great Details on a great deal.
What my father will be aiming for is 8k off. If he had his own business he would be able to go for 10k off MSRP.
Down here in TX they have 5k Toyota rebate so he should be able to get them to kick in another 2k to 3k off.
He is looking for a 5.7 SR5 Double Cab 4x4 standard bed.

Don't leave the business deal on the table... cost me $25 to file a DBA form at my county clerk; give yourself a tax ID number for free at irs.gov, and have your insurance card say "your name d.b.a. your business." That's all you need. And if you never do business, you never do anything else. No change in insurance rating, etc.
I'm officially a "farmer."

Thanks! I've always wanted to own my own business. I know you're a farmer, but I thought you might know if this poses any complications regarding insurance coverage or financing?
Thanks again & happy farming!

Financing could be an issue - I was paying cash so didn't have to worry about that. But if you call yourself a sole proprietor, which I recommend, then I'm not sure it would be any problem - you're going to personally sign to guarantee the loan anyway.
For insurance, I just had my personal policy updated to say "My Name d.b.a. My Farm Name." They said that as long as my business use was < 20%, then no impact to rate, but you should definitely check on that with your agency. The funny thing is that since getting my Tundra, we have purchased some chickens - so does that now make us real farmers?

Thanks! I've obtained my EIN from the IRS and registered as a sole proprietor, so I should be okay with that as far as financing and insurance go. I will be applying for my DBA cert this week; I understand the building inspector needs to approve my application (shouldn't be a problem). After that, it's off to the races! Now all I need to decide is whether to do a deal with the current incentive program or wait to see what happens after they expire. I'm trying to not be too greedy, but every bit helps in this economy. - I appreciate your help on this!!!
#644 of 838 Latest incentives and Price for SR5,4x4,DBL, 5.litre
Aug 20, 2008 (7:41 pm)
I am rushing to put together a deal before the Sept 2 incentives run out.
I am looking for a SR5 Double Cab 4x4 Regular Bed. Not much added but I want
tow mirrors and tow package (part of SR5 package?). There is $4,000 cash plus
the business rebate which I don't see listed on the Toyota site. Is it $1500 or $2000 on top of the other rebates?
Should this truck cost $24K or can I get it for less, in reality.
(I bought a 2000 Tundra in 1999 and I paid invoice, no incentives and that was
$29K plus a little, so I can't resist getting a much better truck for a bunch less than
9 years ago). I found I need more towing than the older model.
Thanks for pricing help.
#645 of 838 2007 Tundra TRD 4x4 5.7 double cab with 38 miles
Aug 22, 2008 (1:06 pm)
My Dad is buying right now as we speak a used certified 2007 Tundra TRD 4x4 5.7 double cab 38 miles. The Toyota Dealer in Arlington TX said they purchased a lot of over stock from California. I looked at CARFAX and that seems to be the case.
He looked at a 08 truck with the same options and the sticker was 36k minus the 5k rebate and minus an extra 3k off his price would have been 28k.
He feels good that with the 7 yr 100k warranty that this certified truck was a better value at 24,500. plus TT&L.
Thought I would share. Thanks for the great info!

Plus tow mirrors, alarm, bed tie downs and backseat storage box?
The Edmunds TMV less current rebates is 24,500.
